Combining one of the largest cutting-widths (132cm) with one of the most powerful engines found on any domestic yard & garden tractor, this superb U.S.-manufactured machine from Simplicity is difficult to beat on every level.
The engine is a 27hp Briggs & Stratton 8270 Commercial Turf-Series OHV model; a twin-cylinder horizontal power-unit that’s commonly used for utility vehicles; heavy-duty grounds-keeping machines; and commercial tractors. The V-Twin cylinder-angling ensures the optimum mixture is maintained for increased power across the rev-band; fewer harmful exhaust emissions; and an ultra-smooth idle. Full-pressure lubrication and an industrial-grade air-filter work to maximise engine-life.
The Simplicity Conquest SYT500 Garden Tractor employs Simplicity’s exclusive Automatic Controlled Traction™ system, whereby the transmission senses when an individual wheel needs more power, and applies it accordingly. This eliminates wheel-spin on slopes and wet ground, in turn eliminating unsightly scuffing.
The side-discharge cutter-deck on this model makes it perfect for informal long-grass areas, but should you wish to create a neat and tidy finish on a formal lawn, you can fit the optional mulch-plug. The deck is Free Floating™, so the blades will track even the subtlest contours of the ground; and it can be height-adjusted in infinite increments for an exceptionally precise cut (adjustment is electronic).
Other deck features include Quick Hitch™, which makes it possible to remove the deck in a matter of minutes for maintenance or towing applications; and a full-width multi-section rear-mounted wooden roller for that much coveted ‘Wembley’-style lawn-stripe.
A delight to drive, the Simplicity SYT500 benefits from the incorporation of a foot-pedal hydrostatic drive which gives you smooth, intuitive control of the tractor’s speed in both forward and reverse gears. If you’re undertaking unbroken straight-line runs, you can engage the cruise control for reduced user-fatigue and a more consistent finish (a padded high-back seat and soft-grip steering wheel contribute further to driver-comfort).
Effortlessly manoeuvrable, the Simplicity Conquest SYT500 boasts power-steering and has an impressively tight turning-circle for such a substantial machine. Further enhancing driving-pleasure is Simplicity's SCS-4 Suspension Comfort System, which works to smooth-out the lumps and bumps.
An hour-meter ensures you’ll get your tractor serviced in good time; while an electronic PTO clutch means you can engage the blades with the simple push of a button.

- The Brand
Simplicity'It's our name and our philosophy. Pure and simple, ours is a singular vision...to be the very best. Every day we strive to build lawn & garden equipment that outperforms all others and provides every customer with the highest level of satisfaction.'
When you consider what's important, the answer is simple. Buying a tractor can be an overwhelming experience. There are many manufacturers, many features and many decisions. But focus on what's important - quality of cut, traction, reliability, ease of use - and many of these questions will begin to answer themselves. And one manufacturer will stand out.
1. A great cut should be your focus and your end result.
Nothing is more important than the ability of your tractor to meticulously mow your lawn. And the way its engineered will determine whether your lawn will show off a velvety smooth manicure or a cut scarred by scalping. There is a definite science to designing a mower deck. And a definite reason why no one's mower deck outperforms a Simplicity.
Simplicity mowers have exceptionally deep designs to increase air flow. And they're the only ones with a Free Floating™ mower deck that rides independently of the tractor frame, following even the subtlest contours.
And the result? No uncut strips. No scalping. And tangible proof of why the 'Simplicity cut' has become synonymous with a smooth well-manicured lawn.
2 Superior traction is a pretty slick benefit you shouldn't be without
Life is full of ups and downs. So are lawns. They come at you in the form of hills, drainage ditches, berms and moulds. Add rain and dew to the mix and you can be left spinning your wheels. Fortunately, Simplicity's engineers have developed an exclusive tractor-enhancing system called Automatic Controlled Traction™. By continuously distributing power in the proper amounts to both rear wheels, even if one wheel begins to slip, you keep moving ahead without damaging your lawn. The smaller models feature equally advanced methods that automatically improve traction, like torsion bar suspension and a uniquely designed pivoting transmission carrier.
3 Reliability produces tractors that handle years as well as lawns.
At a time when everybody seems to be compromising quality in exchange for lower costs, Simplicity have refused to follow suit. Compare their products with any other name in the industry - large, small, new, old - and you won't find a better-built line of machines. What you will find are heavy gauge welded steel frames, solidly engineered front axles, heavy-duty steering spindles, heavy-duty drivetrains and rugged steel gears. And when others began a trend to replace steel hoods with easier-to-produce plastic ones, Simplicity's engineers refused to buckle. In the end the beauty of these tractors is more than skin deep. Their real beauty can be found in the years of steady, reliable performance each one is built to deliver.
4 Easy-to-use equipment makes yard work more fun.
Who says yard work has to be work? Simplicity think it should be fun! That's why you'll find all their products remarkably easy to use. The mower decks, for example, can be removed in seconds without tools thanks to the clever Quick Hitch™ system - a Simplicity exclusive! All tractors offered by MowDIRECT feature models with easy-to-use hydrostatic transmissions and extremely tight turning to minimize trimming. Cutting heights can be easily adjusted at the touch of a lever or the push of a button. And there are many other extras that make mowing easier. Sloping hoods for better visibility, easy-to-adjust seats for driver comfort and control, and tractors that are easy to get on and off - a feature everyone in the family will appreciate!
Simplicity is the USA's premier manufacturer of Lawn and Garden Tractors and their machines have been working on British lawns for thirty years. All products are backed up by a nationwide network of dedicated Service Stations offering the highest standards of specialist support including warranty work, servicing and timely spare parts availability.
